oikos Future Lab

About us

The oikos FutureLab is the biggest event in the annual oikos calendar which gathers representatives from the entire oikos community. It provides a 2-day platform for 120 participants to inspire, discover and develop joint perspectives on the future of sustainability in management and economics. It leverages our global network of student members, alumni, advisors, faculty and partners for action. It offers a “laboratory” to design initiatives, engage the oikos community in pursuing them and fuel our journey towards higher impact.

The 2013 oikos FutureLab will take place on 11 – 12 November in St. Gallen. It will focus on “Transforming Education” and on opportunities to drive change at faculties for economics and management. As a platform focused on solutions and action, the oikos FutureLab will offer insights to co-learn with our members and partners and to identify opportunities to take oikos to the next level as an effective learning organization – in particular:

  • To understand and effectively tap into the learning opportunities already existing in our network.
  • To develop a platform for oikos and universities where we are active as learning organizations that foster sustainability leadership skills among their members and audiences.
  • To explore what a reference model for sustainability education in economics and management actually could look like, so that we can inspire students, scholars and university administrators.
